OAK CREEK — Oak Creek police believe the same group of men are behind a spree of crime Monday.

Police say it began at the Woodman's gas station on Howell Avenue around 10:39 a.m., when two men attacked a man filling his car. The suspects tried to steal his car but it appears he fought back, and the suspects eventually left.

Police say the suspects then approached a second victim in a nearby apartment complex, where they entered a vehicle but left without the car.

The suspects then attacked an elderly woman in the Kohl's parking lot, according to police. They stole her vehicle and cell phone.

Oak Creek police pursued two vehicles matching the description of the suspects' vehicles, but ended the pursuit on the part of the suspects' dangerous driving, according to police.

Police suspect the men are targeting elderly people, initially asking for money.
